Apple to Show Its 'Smart Home' Platform at WWDC
According to what people familiar with the matter say, Apple may launch a new software platform called “Smart Home” at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which kicks off next week. The new system will allow iPhone users to control their home security system, lights etc. directly from their smartphone.

The scheme will be similar to Apple’s existing “Made for iPhone” label, given to compatible headphones, speakers and other accessories, but with a new brand and logo. Apple may also provide additional checks and assurances that certified products are not vulnerable to hackers.
